Dee Park Signage & Interiors

Dee Park is a regeneration project in Reading. Oak Tree House is a new build extra care building at the heart of the regeneration within the development. Working for Catalyst Housing Group and Willmott Dixon Homes to initially design a wayfinding proposal for the external and internal of the building.

The proposal included a scope of work for an integrated wayfinding system comprised of signage elements from street entrance, through to lift directories, stair cores and front doors, and wayfinding wallpaper.

The design was well received and we were then asked to produce a solution for the interior design to all shared communal areas within the building, including shared lounge spaces, a double height space entrance atrium, offices, staff areas, dining room and corridors. We based our concept around rich, dark colours and materials including a dark wood to floors and a brightly coloured rubber finish to stair core floors to correspond with the supergraphics on walls.

The handover was complete in January 2012.
